Aug. 2, 2010 - PRLog -- North Las Vegas Center Ring Boxing is a non-profit organization that has been established since 1994 and geared towards making a difference in under-privileged youths in Las Vegas.  Founder and Owner Jose Banales have a proven track record for “making champions of life” through various boxing and educational programs for kids in his community.  “The mission of the club is to establish and facilitate programs for youths ages 8 to 18 and their families, that promote the improved image of boxing as a sport and to provide positive interactions that facilitate educational, physical, mentoring and mental growth,” explains Jose.
     The club/gym opens from 4:30p to 9p Monday through Friday for tutoring and training.  The Club serves youths daily at 600 S Martin Luther King Blvd. Las Vegas, NV 89106.  The Club is available to low and moderate-income youths of high-risk neighborhoods located in all North Las Vegas and Las Vegas.  However, it is open to all youths and referrals from the juvenile justice system regardless of which area of Clark County they reside in.  The program is free as long as youths are in school and hold at least a 2.0 grade averages.
    “We want everyone to support our efforts because it’s ultimately for kids who can’t help themselves.  We take pride in seeing all the kids that come through our gym succeed in life.  We are not just making champion fighters, we make champions of life,” Gary Gonzales of NLV Center Ring Boxing.  “We encourage everyone to come out to the fights and see our hard work for themselves.  Meet the fighters, the coaches and our board members to get an idea of who we are as parents, mentors and community partners.  We just want to make a difference in lives while at the same time, bringing respect to boxing as a sport.”
